Subject: Women In The Baking Industry?

Why of course. In 1946 they could. Boys probably could too if necessary. You see, in order to operate that 1946 cash register used in that bakery (which does not calculate change), you actually need to know elementary school arithmetic, like second nature, so you can make change...something today's HS grads as I have noted, almost entirely lack. Give them 3 dollars and 7 cents for a $2.82 ring up and they go, like, bonkers.

Great film that does an excellent job of surveying the baking industry. Apparently pre-Hostess Twinkie era.

Subject: Warning: White Bread Ahead!
These 'Your Life's Work' films are so funny, as they present 'qualifications' to what is needed to be a baker, which of course involves Physics, chemistry and mathematics. A wide variety of bakery jobs are shown and described specifically here, like the pan loader. "The pan loader loads the dough into the pan'. The film poo-poo's the idea of women getting into the baking industry instead saying that "In some bakeries women are employed in light work such as putting frosting on rolls or cakes. but in retail business, women are in greatest demand as salespersons". So THERE. Reccomended!
